CrossFit is for Everyone!
Our goal is to train each of our athletes (what we call our members) to have a well rounded inclusive fitness.
You should expect to get stronger, faster, more coordinated, and find yourself in a generally ready state to tackle any athletic event… including just life itself.We find after training with us our members have more energy, less chronic pain, better blood markers for health, less body fat, more muscle, and much more confidence.
You don’t have to get in shape before joining!
All of our experienced athletes you see doing super intense things were once in your shoes thinking about signing up for their first class. They pulled the trigger and slowly got better until they are where they are today. If you can show up we’ll show you the way to the best shape of your life.
Being a little intimidated is normal
Once you walk through our doors you’re one of us. Our environment is 100% supportive and positive. Everyone is challenged by CrossFit and nobody ever got good by cutting others down. You can expect our community to be welcoming and to help you learn the ropes. We were all once beginners. Before you know it you may be the veteran helping others learn their way around.
We’re a safe place to train for everyone.
We don’t care if you’re fat, skinny, old, young, black, white, or purple. Our only requirement is a willingness to do the work and a desire to improve. We will take care of the rest! … oh and bring a water bottle.
About our classes
Our classes are 60 minutes long
and may include a group warmup, some skill practice on new movements, strength work, and conditioning workouts. We stretch, move, learn, and test our bodies. Our methods are based on the best of weightlifting, gymnastics, running, rowing, and calisthenics.
We cap our class sizes
to ensure a high quality of coaching and a superior experience over other gyms that cram 30+ people into a limited space. While we do sometimes have fun with partner and team workouts all sharing of equipment is planned, not because we ran out.
Each class is lead by an experienced and knowledgeable coach
Our staff works weekly to improve our exercise science knowledge and coaching skill. Continuing education is an absolute must for our staff. We pride ourselves on having the best coaches around teaching our classes. We think the difference will be clear when you experience it.
No prior CrossFit experience is required to come to a Fitness program class. We’ll take care of you, you just have to show up!
Isn’t CrossFit dangerous?!
No, actually CrossFit is quite safe. Our injury rates are very low especially compared with risky scenarios like rec kickball or adult soccer leagues. Even done poorly our movements are inherently safe.
Additionally our knowledgeable coaching staff is invested in your long term athletic development. We’re in no rush to push you harder than you can handle. We find a methodical approach to learning the movements first before adding intensity not only keeps athletes safer but produces far superior performance.
Will I get big and bulky doing CrossFit?
Unlikely. If you’re female you will always look female, there’s no risk of “looking like a dude.” Even our ladies who have been trying for years to get as strong as humanly possible still look very feminine and tell us they love their body. Living in a body that can DO things gives a level of confidence that looking a certain way never could. In a world of confusing and damaging body issues don’t you deserve to see what an athletic version of you looks like? So far we haven’t found anyone that didn’t like it.
What if I have an old injury or movement limitations?
We find things like chronic back pain, achy knees, and other pains often simply disappear as we get you moving well. If your issues requires a little more attention we’d love to chat directly with you. You can email our Director of Coaching, Tyler@crossfit214.com and we’ll reach out to answer your questions and see if we’re the right gym for you. Additionally, we can modify just about anything to accommodate any scenario. We’re also experts at rehabilitation and just might have the expertise you need to get back to 100%.
